Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance presented by Porsche offers educational seminars too
This is more than just an opportunity to view some of the rarest, most pristine vehicles in North America. The Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance presented by Porsche also offers two (2) complimentary automotive seminars on Saturday, September 16th for both the public and attendees of the event to enjoy. Inside the Roxy Theatre in Owen Sound, automotive manufacturer experts will offer a behind the scenes look at two of the Concours marquees featured over the 3-day automotive weekend.
The first seminar will begin at 2:00 p.m. and will be presented by Porsche Cars Canada. Aptly titled "60 Years of History", Porsche celebrates the 60th anniversary of the 911. Seminar participants will get to hear experts go through some of the history that helped shape this iconic rear-engine sports car for the past six decades.
The second seminar, beginning at 3:15 p.m., will be presented by Global Buick Design, titled "Decades of Design & Innovation". The seminar will be exploring 12 decades of design and innovation from one of North America's preeminent vehicle brands. From the dreaming minds of designers, to pioneering the first concept car, Buick has been at the forefront of styling throughout its history.

What is a Concours d'Elegance? Derived from the French term meaning a competition of elegance, the Concours d'Elegance has a historic story dating back to 17th Century French society. An event that began with horse-drawn carriages being paraded through the parks of Paris, France has evolved into a display of antique and classic cars for both competition and celebration. The 2023 Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance presented by Porsche will be held on the 18th fairway of Cobble Beach Golf Resort & Community overlooking the beautiful waters of Georgian Bay.
